Before & After

I needed a mental health day from my day job today.  I decided to be creative. This is what I started out with...

collected wine corks, scrap of burlap,
primitive star from Pat Catans and
5 x 7 picture frame from a yard sale


THE AFTER

-I took the glass out of the frame

-roughed up the frame with sand paper

-cut a scrap of burlap and hot glue to the frame

-glue all the wine corks to the burlap

-added jute all around the wine corks

-added the word salute' (means cheers in Italian) to the star

-glued the star to the wine corks

FINAL DESTINATION....sitting on top of my stove
Come back and visit for more creations made on my mental health day!

Geri I LOVE IT!!!! I'm glad to see the mental health day was productive!!! I wish I had been sent the memo since I was the only one there. I came across a box that holds 3 candles and almost gave it to you (sorry). The candle holders went into the candle closet and the box they were in is sitting here waiting for its next purpose! Can't wait to see more!!!!
